Pack Your Bags, Farnsworthless: Dotel is Pitching a Rehab Start Tomorrow
Monday, July 17, 2006
Yeah, you heard me right, this is they guy I want out there instead of Farnsworthless

Octavio Dotel has been tough to find this year. To be honest, I was beginning to forget that he was even a part of the team. But after watching Kyle Farnsworthless give up yet another run during Sunday’s game—that’s 20 so far this year, in only 41.1 innings—I remembered that the Yankees are sitting on some potential pitching gold in Dotel…if he can just get his arm in working condition.

The Yankees did a little gambling when they decided to sign Dotel last year; he has a history of excellent pitching before he blew his elbow out, but his June 2005 Tommy John surgery made the rest of his career a question mark. The Yanks picked him up for a song, though, and have been crossing their fingers that his elbow would heal enough for them to exploit his pitching prowess in time to edge out the Red Sox for the division title.

All that finger-crossing and pagan sacrificing (shh, don’t tell) on the Yankees’ part may have finally paid off: Dotel is set to pitch for the Trenton Thunder tomorrow night, a huge step in his rehab process. If he pitches well tomorrow, he could realistically be ready for a pinstriped appearance within a week.

And not to get too far ahead of myself…but if he does come back soon, and if he pitches well in relief for the Yanks…perhaps I would then be able to convince Steinbrenner that my dream of trading Farsworthless to the Royals in exchange for some of their delicious bbq would be a truly lucrative move!

    I think Farnsworth is valuable for you guys. I love it when he pitches.
